Jalapeno Pesto

This is my favorite pesto so far. I could probably eat it everyday! I get a lot of compliments on this whenever I make it. One of the easiest and most versatile dishes to make.

Instructions
  1. Pour olive oil, nuts, salt, pepper and lemon juice into blender and pulse.
  2. Add jalapeno peppers and cilantro. Pulse blender until desired consistency.
  3. Using a spatula, transfer pesto to a medium size serving dish.
Recipe Notes

Consistency can be modified by adding or removing greens/olive oil, and or nuts. Grated cheese is sometimes added to this. Any green and/or nut can be substituted.

Serve as a side or over meats or salads. This is very versatile. The oiliness makes dryer meats such as chicken breast and wild pork/venison, much more fun to eat.
